Our grandsons are spending the weekend with us. Their parents will be here tomorrow for Mother's Day BBQ. So, I needed to do my Sunday Slow Baking project today.
My oldest grandson, Sage, has always loved to help in the kitchen, and cookies are the perfect project for him to help with.
This week, Jerry picked Biscotti di Limone e Semolino - page 50 in Gina's Dolce Italiano.
Assembling all of the ingredients:
I like to measure all the ingredients in advance.
He waited and waited and waited - then after mixing, and chilling, It was finally time for Sage to help. We cut the chilled dough into even squares to make it easier for him.
It didn't take long for him to get the hang of gently rolling the dough into small balls and then rolling the balls in the sugar.
Setting the timer was fun, but waiting for the cookies to bake was a little bit boring.
My oven is much slower than most, so we actually baked the cookies for about 20 minutes in order to get them to brown. The final product was beautiful.
Sage had to wait until I took some final pictures of the plate. It was torture. But he finally got to taste the fruit of his labor.
